I think I got a handle on it jmi. Even way back in the early days of binary newsgroups, Canadian ISP's included access with a connection. If I remember correctly, hincandenza mentioned U.S. ISP's don't normally include newsgroup access as part of the package. So, us "Canuckistanians" got reared on newsgroups right from the git go. Question remains, did the RIAA and their nazi cousins persuade american ISP's to NOT include newsgroups....? Hmmmmmmmm...
Anyways, whatever.... but you guys gotta stop this fawking bullchips, rise up, kick the basturds out, do whatever you have to do.
